Katahma is a lovely, at-ease place to get away from the hustle of daily life. Set directly on the beach, it's communal living /kitchen area is relaxing and basic. Everything you need, nothing you don't . Room choices range from basic motel-type room, to rooms with a patio, to separate, stand-alone rooms with outdoor (natural privacy screening) showers!! All rooms... More

The location that Katamah has on the beach is amazing but the people that run it are even better. Because attention to detail isn't my strong suit I accidentally booked a suite for me and my girlfriend on the wrong days. When I realized this a couple days before I was to arrive, I frantically called Monika and explained my... More

Katamah is a great place to be when you want to enjoy the simplicity of Treasure a Beach area! Our 8 days in this place was peaceful and relax. We had a great time! The place is very pleasant with wide space in front of the beach. We stayed in a very nice cottage "The Cabin" which had a private... More

This is a long overdue review, however as I am booking my second visit to this property and looking so incredibly forward to it I felt I should reiterate what so many others have said! First I should mention I have visited Jamaica more then 50 times throughout the past 35 years, various locations, many different types of properties! I... More

The stay was fun because the place has a very relaxed vibe to it. We felt it was overpriced for a beach hut without a/C and no private bathroom though. On an off note: the beach is kind of blackish in that area.

I have stayed in alot of hotels and by far this was one of the best. If you are looking for a hotel to cater to all your needs and have room service this is not for you. But if you are looking for a getaway with natural beauty and peace and comfort then I recommend this for you. I... More

I cannot speak highly enough of our time at Katamah. We stayed in Laila II for 3 nights which was just perfect. The room doesn't have air con but it doesn't need it! The wind from the ocean and fan was more than enough - we even got cold!! Although we didn't use it the room had a little kitchenette,... More

Welcoming, beautiful, relaxing - we stayed at Katamah for 4 nights on our honeymoon and were sorry to leave. All staff were extremely helpful, knowledgeable, and pleasant. Treasure Beach is breathtaking in its rustic and secluded beauty and its residents are approachable and friendly.

The property is in an excellent location, right on the beach and close to amenities. However it could be better with small investment from the owners. The room we had was very dark due the the dark brown light fitting. It was beautiful but blocked the light. The communal kitchen wasn't very clean and there was no allocated space in... More
